With his characteristic wit and wisdom, art historian and author Paul Koudounaris will present an illustrated talk based on his new book Heavenly Bodies: Cult Treasures & Spectacular Saints from the Catacombs (Thames & Hudson, 2013). This unique publication tells the story of 16th century skeletons from the Roman Catacombs once treasured as holy relics in Northern Europe but forgotten in the last century. Dr. Koudounaris gained unprecedented access to religious institutions to study and photograph these lavish and bejeweled artifacts. Fascinating and a little bit creepy: the perfect way to kick off Halloween and Día de los Muertos!
